Ghostly Interference

Today, welcome Jan Sikes to the blog. She’s a dear friend and is here to tell us about her newest publication. Make sure you make her feel welcome, and use those sharing buttons. The place is yours, Jan.

Character interviews are fun and give a more in-depth insight into the character and what makes him or her tick.

Today, we have a renowned guest who will interview Jag Peters, the main male character in Ghostly Interference!

The floor is all yours, Erin. And, we’re rolling.

Erin: Hi, Jag. Thank you for taking time away from your busy life to join us today! I want to start by asking you to name your favorite things in life.

Jag: Hi, Erin. Thanks for having me today. I’m honored. Wow, my favorite things. That list might be lengthy. For starters, I love playing music. I always have, from the time I was a little boy. I love Rocky Road ice cream, fine red wine, making love to Rena Jett, and hanging out with friends. I’ll stop there.

Erin: Tell our listeners about your deal with karma and why it is so important to you.

Jag: Well, it’s no secret I was raised by a mother who believed strongly in the law of karma and the result of not taking responsibility for your actions. So, she always drilled it in my head to keep my karma slate clean. In other words, to make wrongs right and be accountable. It became a part of who I am.

Erin: Moving forward, I’d like to know a little more about how you met Rena Jett.

Jag: Oh, my favorite subject! (He chuckles) It was indeed a meeting of happenstance. I was driving home from work one day, and my mind was a million miles away, thinking about a project I was responsible for and about problems I was having with my boss. I wasn’t paying close enough attention and almost collided with a motorcycle at an intersection. Because keeping my karma straight is so important to me, I was compelled to find the rider and apologize. Little did I know it was Rena. But that’s how we met.

Erin: It’s my understanding that she wasn’t very receptive to your apology.

Jag: That’s an understatement. She was the most beautiful and pissed-off woman I’d ever run across. She made me feel about an inch high. But I can be persistent when I want to, and eventually, my charms won her over.

Erin: I don’t want to get too deep into your story as I wouldn’t want to ruin it for our readers, but I’d like to hear more about your passion for playing music.

Jag: From the time I was a little boy, I wanted to play piano. My father was a highly successful attorney, and he discouraged it. But my amazing mom got me piano lessons and made sure I always had one to play. However, it was a strange twist of fate that I got the opportunity to live out my dream. As you say, I don’t want to ruin the story for your readers, so I’ll stop there. But my happy place is behind the keyboard. I love playing, writing, performing, and every aspect that goes along with music.

Erin: I only have a couple more questions, as we are almost out of time, but I do want to ask you about a white rune that appears in your story. How did that come about, and what the heck is a rune?

Jag: I’ll give you the short version. Runes are used much like Tarot cards today in the metaphysical world for divination. In our story, the rune came to Rena via a letter from her brother, Sam Jett, who was killed in Afghanistan. It carried the Wunjo symbol, and that represented a ‘happily ever after.’ That’s what her brother wanted for her, and he was instrumental in bringing Rena and me together.

Erin: That brings me to my last question. What’s it like to see and communicate with a ghost?

Jag: That’s a loaded question. The first time I saw Sam Jett was outside an upscale night club. He was dressed in full combat gear with a rifle slung over his shoulder, standing next to my car. When I looked away and back, he was gone. I was pretty freaked out. I drove through the parking lot a couple of times looking for him but didn’t see him again until Rena took me on a Harley ride in the country. I thought I was losing my mind. When I tried to tell her what I saw, she just got angry and thought I was trying to pull a fast one. It took a while to settle into the idea that Sam wanted me to play a part in his sister’s happily ever after.

Erin: I can certainly understand that you may have thought you’d lost your mind. What an experience. Well, we are out of time, but I want to thank you again for taking a moment to come and visit with us. I want to invite everyone to pick up a copy of Ghostly Interference so you can get the full story. And remember, if you read it, please leave the author a review. Any last words, Jag?

Jag: No, I think you’ve covered it. Again, thank you for inviting me down to talk about Ghostly Interference.

Erin: This is Erin Andrews signing off.

BOOK BLURB

Jag Peters has one goal in his quiet comfortable life—to keep his karma slate wiped clean. A near-miss crash with a candy apple red Harley threatens to upend his safe world. He tracks down the rider to apologize properly. Slipping into a seedy biker bar, he discovers the rider isn’t a “he”, it’s a “she”, a dark-haired beauty.

Rena Jett is a troubled soul, who lives in a rough world. She wants no part of Jag’s apology, but even while she pushes him away, she is attracted to him. When he claims to see a ghost—her brother—can she trust him? And could her brother’s final gift, a magical rune stone with the symbol for “happily ever after” have the power to heal her wounds and allow opposites to find common ground—perhaps even love?

  20. Great character interview, Jan! I’m reading your book in the bits of time I have between projects. I have to admit, I spend more time wishing I was reading it than paying attention to what I’m doing! It’s a most welcome break to exit my world and enter Jag’s and Rena’s.

    • How wonderful to hear, Patty. Yes, it’s often tempting to ignore our reality for someone else’s between the pages of a book. I love doing that. I’m happy you are enjoying Jag and Rena’s story! Merry Christmas!
